The final home stretch

44. White Fang by Jack London
45. On the Decay of the Art of Lying by Mark Twain
46. How the Grinch Stole Christmas by Dr. Seuss read by Walter Matthau

How I've managed to never read White Fang until now is beyond me. What a fantastic book! For me, a dog lover, I found myself captivated from start to finish. With the exception of the first part, the story was told entirely from the perspectives of the wolves and dogs. I loved it! London explained things from how a wolf or dog would perceive them and not through the emotions and intellect of a human. I loved it! If you get a chance, read it. You won't be disappointed.

As for the Grinch, this was a free offer from Audible.com that I claimed via Facebook. It was a wonderful short Christmas listen, and Walter Matthau (isn't he just wonderful!) did a fantastic job narrating the curmudgeonly tale. I definitely recommend grabbing this one!
